    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility, ability to work from home often if you build enough credibility through your work - although not guaranteed. It's a great place to start your career.

    Cons

    Not learning much, just getting better at doing things, expect to work long hours year-round..

    Advice to Management

    Don't just talk about work-life balance, implement it. Eliminate some of the programs, trainings and communications because they realIy do not add any value to the individual or the firm. If you can't pay base salary well, then pay 100% for basic benefits as medical, dental etc.. Increase health subsidy amounts, offer perks like travel subsidy etc..Match compensation with the inflation and the number of hours people work (giving up their health & personal life). Seriously work on improving your performance evaluations - you tell people to go above and beyond and when they all go above and beyond you say that everyone did well so thats a standard now - do more to go above and beyond..Please get out of the bell curve - it does not work and makes you lose the top talent that can be a future of this firm. Also, show loyalty to your loyal workers, if you want them to stick around give them confidence that they too can become partners hope of which is declining with each passing year...

    I am a part of Enterprise Risk services. Culture is good here and people are friendly for the most part. Although i have been part of projects where this was not true.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Challenging environment. Surround yourself with motivated, intelligent people who are driven to succeed.

    Cons

    Your career and success is dictated by other people regardless of how hard your work or the workload you accept. You could be on a much more complex and difficult client and that will not be taken in to consideration.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with lower level staff and new hires. Do not tell them what they want to hear, tell them what they need to hear and how things work in the real world.

    Pros

    Smart people, great company benefits, very nice offices, good mentorship program, DU is amazing

    Cons

    Low salary and arbitrary/ambiguous growth opportunity; constant change; constant layoffs; egos like crazy, but that's not surprising

    Advice to Management

    Don't make so many drastic changes to the sales and marketing organization. Let the dust settle every once in a while - you might be surprised

    I worked at Deloitte full-time

    Pros

    Get to learn a lot, can work with some incredible people, decent level of flexibility on Fridays and weekends, recognizable name which helps with business school applications and certain exit opps

    Cons

    Just like there can be good people to work with, there can also be some difficult personalities at a firm that's this big, exit opps could be better, plenty of time spent on administrative tasks and formatting due to inefficient processes

    Advice to Management

    Create a more cohesive culture, compensate based on capabilities rather than pure year over year standardized raises, and establish a better identity for the firm's value proposition
